This is Breaking News: Information Reaching News784 is that a Vincentian national was killed in Canada. News784 was informed that the deceased is 31-year-old (Virgil Jack) originally from Georgetown.
An autopsy was partly completed Sunday and revealed that Jack suffered multiple penetrating wounds, investigators said.
Speaking with reporters, Det. Terry Browne said police are concerned that “this is a particularly violent act” and he urged anyone who saw or heard anything to contact investigators.
He said Jack was last seen by friends and family between 2:30 and 3 p.m. on Friday.
“We’re trying to figure out where Miss Jack went in and around 2:30 p.m. and who she planned to meet,” Browne said.
He said that while Jack sometimes went out on Friday nights, she always returned home.
Security camera images of Jack from Friday show her wearing clothes similar to those she was wearing when her body was discovered Saturday – camouflage type leggings, a multi-colored shirt, Sketchers running shoes and a light green or turquoise ball cap.
It’s not yet clear whether she was murdered in the park or if her body was taken there after she was dead, but Browne said police are eager to speak with any potential witnesses.
“We think for someone to have inflicted those type of injuries, if it occurred in this area, we think someone would have heard or seen something,” he said.
Browne said a set of tire tracks were found near the entrance of the park in a place where one wouldn’t expect to find tire marks.
“It appears as though someone was in a hurry to leave very very quickly,” he said.
He said the person driving that vehicle also appears to have hit a curb and there may be significant damage to the undercarriage of the vehicle.
Jack lived in the Keele and Finch area, not far from the park where she was found. She was living with a roommate and a sister who was visiting from outside the country and neither had any information that she was planning to meet anyone, Browne said.
Jack was newly married last fall, though her husband lives outside of Canada. Browne said some people might know her by her married name “Jordan.”
According to Browne, the 31-year-old had a full-time job and lived a quiet lifestyle and her violent death leaves many questions unanswered.
